Kewaunee welcomed a new business this week as Hometown Pharmacy held a grand opening and ribbon-cutting ceremony on Wednesday. Hometown Pharmacy opened its doors at 223 Milwaukee Street in downtown Kewaunee. Pharmacist Sarah Bartel, who has lived in Kewaunee since 1999 and worked for Hometown Pharmacy the past two years, says having access to healthcare in smaller communities is important.
Kewaunee has been without a pharmacy store since May when Shopko closed. Hometown Pharmacy has two pharmacists, two pharmacy technicians, and a cashier regularly working along with two part-time employees.
